Description Martin Frodl 2015-10-15 09:32:14 EDT
Description of problem:

On RHEL 7, sosreport's upstart plugin has been largely replaced by the systemd plugin. From the log, it does not seem to collect any relevant data: none of the referenced files exist and the commands, if executed at all, produce a useless output (such as "init: unrecognized option '--version'" or "ls: cannot access /etc/init/: No such file or directory").

Is there any reason to keep it in sos, even if disabled be default?

We support more than a dozen different distributions from the same upstream codebase: some use classical SysV init, some use Upstart, others systemd.

This not a bug any more than e.g. the existence of a Red Hat specific plugin would be in a CentOS, Debian or Ubuntu environment.
Comment 3 Bryn M. Reeves 2015-10-15 11:26:59 EDT
Also, I don't see why this is running on your system at all - the plugin will only trigger if a package named 'upstart' exists:

 20 class Upstart(Plugin, RedHatPlugin, DebianPlugin, UbuntuPlugin):
 21     """Upstart init system
 22     """
 24     plugin_name = 'upstart'
 25     profiles = ('system', 'services', 'boot')
 26     packages = ('upstart',)

Is that the case on your system? Or is it being force-enabled via the command line?

Force-enabled indeed. Sorry about the fuss.
